I’m not the only one

I’m not the only one taking a deeper look at the rantings and ravings of various tech sites about the Windows 2000 SP3 EULA. Take a look at Fred Langa’s new InformationWeek article. The important part of the EULA left out of other reports:

If you choose to utilize the update features within the OS Product or OS Components, it is necessary to use certain computer system, hardware, and software information to implement the features.

That’s right, it say’s “If you choose” to use the automatic update features, you are giving MS permission to access your machine and your OS. It does not say “we are going to auto-update regardless of what you choose to do”, as many have been reporting.
